Buist Academy Celebrates International Day of Peace
Pinwheels For Peace
Who: Media outlets are welcomed and encouraged to attend as students from Buist Academy participate in Pinwheels for Peace and celebrate International Peace Day.
What: Pinwheels for Peace is an art project started in 2005 as a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. Last year (year 7), 2011, over 4 million pinwheels were spinning in over 3,500 locations, including the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East, Africa and South America. This project is non-political – peace doesn’t necessarily have to be associated with the conflict of war, it can be related to violence/intolerance in our daily lives, to peace of mind. To each of us, peace can take on a different meaning, but, in the end, it all comes down to a simple definition: “a state of calm and serenity, with no anxiety, the absence of violence, freedom from conflict or disagreement among people or groups of people.” Buist Academy students will create pinwheels and write their thoughts about "war and peace / tolerance/ living in harmony with others" on them. These pinwheels will be "planted" on the outside of the school campus on Whipple Road as a public statement and art exhibit/installation.
Students in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade will also participate in events from 8-10am that help promote inner peace- soccer, yoga, hula hoop, music, dance, and art. They will be supporting our school’s anti-bully/peace campaign- “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully.”
When: 8:00-10 a.m., Friday, September 21, 2012
Where: 942 Whipple Road, Mt. Pleasant, SC
For more information: For more information regarding this event, please contact First Grade Teacher Maura Ondo at 724-7750.
